Does anyone that can identify snakes know what kind of snake this is?

It seems fairly aggressive for a snake in my area, Long Island New York, seen yesterday in my front yard. Only about 2 to 3 feet at most. Kept sticking out forked tongue.

    Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good.

    Source(s): COVID = COW ID; World Bank website says that Project COVID is from April 2nd, 2020 until 31st of March, 2025. According to the Last Prophet (aka incarnated ARCHANGEL URIEL aka saint healer VYACHESLAV KRASHENINNIKOV) if the last descendant rejects mark of the beast, then his/her direct ancestors go to permanent heaven. To reject mark of the beast, one needs to hide within a 10-15 people group without electronics/documents. Documents are from Satan; burn them. Electronics can be used to track you and to show the antichrist (even on old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's using Tesla's ether); forgive me.

    Looks like a black headed snake of the genus Tantilla. They are harmless. The only dangerously venomous snake in your area are rattlesnakes because the coral snakes do not range that far north. Rattlesnakes have at least a button on the tip of the tail and usually several segments they use as warning so they won't get stepped on by bison and other large mammals. 

    Snakes flick out their tongue to smell the surroundings. The tongue brings back odor particles into the mouth to be examined by an organ inside the mouth. Odor is what snakes use to detect prey and also to evaluate what kind of enemy may be out there. For example, if a rattlesnake smells a mouse, it will strike and bite it. If a rattlesnake smells the odor of a kingsnake, then it will try to flee since kingsnakes will eat other snakes, including rattlesnakes. During the breeding season, females will leave phermones on the ground, and the males will follow the smell the find the females for mating purposes.

    Nekkid is right and Raven is close. It's Storeria d. dekayi, the Northern Brown (or DeKay's) Snake.

    Looks like maybe a dekays brown snake, which is a non-venemous species.

    And he's being defensive, not aggressive.
